Bell 429 for sale

Bell 429 is a light, multipurpose helicopter.

Designed by the American firm Bell Helicopter Textron. Was designed primarily to provide emergency medical care outside the hospital.

First flight of the prototype took place on 27 February 2007. The type certificate for the helicopter received 1 July 2009.
The impetus for the development of the Bell 429 was the demand for new medical helicopter from the side of the ambulance services. Initially for this purpose was intended Bell 427, but the small size of the cockpit 427 are not allowed to place the stretcher with the patient, and Avionics systems could not provide the veroleta certified according to PPP. Initially, the Bell 429 was designed as elongated Bell 427 (he had to get the name of the Bell 427s3i), but the helicopter still does not meet the needs of customers.

Bell decided to abandon the use of the glider 427-th model on the new helicopter and decided to go to his new concept of airframe – MAPL (Modular Affordable Product Line), which at that time was still under development. 429-m installed brand new modular airframe and improved blade design, but the engine and transmission got him from a 427. The helicopter is certified according to the Rules instrument flight with one pilot. In the development of the helicopter was also involved Asian companies – Korea Aerospace Industries and Mitsui Bussan Aerospace.

By February 2006, Bell has already managed to test all critical components MAPL on the Bell 427. First Bell 429 rose into the air on 27 February 2007. Certification was initially planned for the end of 2007, but delays caused by lack of spare parts and materials is quite common for all manufacturers of aircraft in that period, forced Bell to reconsider the terms. By October 2007, the external design was ready. In February 2008 the tests were performed three 429-x, which had to descend by the time 600 hours.

The helicopter received type certificate from Transport Canada (TCCA) 1 July 2009 and 7 July 2009, from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). The certification by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) was obtained on 24 September 2009.

The first customer of the Bell 429 was the company Air Methods Corporation, the largest manufacturer of air medical equipment in the United States. 7 July 2009 the first helicopter (s/n 57006) was transferred to Air Methods (the owner) and Mercy One (the operator) on the Bell plant in Mirabel, Quebec, Canada.
The Bell 429 is mounted four-blade main rotor. The blades are composite and have curved tips of the blades to reduce noise. The tail rotor consists of two two-bladed screws, fastened together in the form of the letter X, also to reduce noise. The total volume of the cabin is 5.78 m3, including 3,68 m3 for the passenger cabin and 2.1 m3 for the Luggage compartment. There is a side door to load the patient. It is also possible optionally installing the rear doors for easier loading.

The fuel system uses a soft shock-proof fuel tanks, located under the bottom panel of the cab. Fuel capacity of the standard configuration – 215 gallons 814 litres). Extra fuel tank allows you to take on Board more 39.2 per gallon (148,4 l). Supply of their gas takes place with the help of pumps. The electrical system consists of a 28-volt battery and two starter-generators (150 A in the standard configuration). It is possible to install the starter-generators of a current of 200 A.

The power plant consists of two Pratt & Whitney Canada PW207D2 that provide 1100 HP (820 kW) of power at a speed of rotation of the free turbine 6,000 rpm Motors are controlled by an electronic system FADEC. The torque is transmitted from the engines to two-stage transmission, and from there to the main rotor hub through the mast at the speed of 395 rpm. Also torque is transmitted to the tail gearbox at speed of 6000 rpm through the shaft of the fan (to cool the oil in the engine and transmission) and two composite shaft. Inside the tail gearbox speed drops to 2291 rpm and is transmitted to the tail rotor. Transmission rotor has a service life of 5000 hours, transmission steering – 3200 hours.

The helicopter has a glass cockpit with 3-axis autopilot (can accommodate 4-axis autopilot as an option) and a standard command-flight instrument. In the standard configuration, the helicopter uses skis as landing equipment. It is possible to install a retractable wheeled undercarriage. While the cruise speed of the helicopter increases by 5 knots. Helicopter certified flight Rules by one pilot devices in category A. Capable of continuing flight with one engine inoperative.

Bell 429 was the first helicopter in the development of the maintenance program which was used by the planning system maintenance MSG-3. At the moment (January 2013) he is the only one of the two helicopters in the world (second Eurocopter EC 175) using the system.
